    Jennifer S. Brown

    Author of Modern Girls

    Jennifer S. Brown lives and writes in the suburbs of Boston. She grew up in Florida, but has slowly discovered the benefits of cold weather, and she's developed a passion for snow shoeing, drinking bourbon in front of the fireplace, and writing while draped with a blanket. She's an avid runner, a voracious reader, and a passionate, if not quite skilled, baker. She lives with her husband and two kids.
